Monroe County was built on the backs of entrepreneurs. Individuals who decided to take a risk in the hopes of creating something. These somethings have gone on to spur billions in capital investment and create jobs that contribute to the development of our communities.

The Monroe County BDC and Promedica Innovations have teamed up to find more somethings. The Monroe County Matching Fund program is a revolving loan fund aimed at helping entrepreneurs get their ideas into reality. The program is geared toward startups and early stage grow ups in the tech, manufacturing and health fields that need a boost to get to them to the next stage.

Additionally, the Monroe County Link Grow Strategically Pillar team is working to identify gaps in entrepreneurial services throughout our area. In the coming months, they will be working with area partners to release a plan on creating an ecosystem that will work towards promoting and strengthening Monroe County as an ideal place for entrepreneurs to grow and thrive.

Contact the BDC and recommend entrepreneurs! Or, have them reach out to Matt by email  (mvanisacker@monroecountybdc.org) or by calling 734-241-8081 x 103. Together, we will create an environment of innovation and success in Monroe County!
